Early in the day, WPMT Fox 43 went LIVE from Sovereign Bank Stadium to help promote the derby to south-central PA. A special thanks to Mike Gorsegner and the entire Fox 43 staff for that wonderful opportunity!
Stay Classy, York made an appearance on Friday. On his trip around the Commonwealth to six derby events, Bob Hauer helped to lead his team to fourth place with 1,170 points. Not a bad showing out on field!
With a mini-Green Monster in left field and the possibility of weather affecting our batters, we did not have any home runs in the White Rose city! We look to Lancaster to help boost our home run tally for 2010. In the meantime, check out photos from the derby event at the York Revolution!
